TRAVEL IN NABADWEEP SHOW MAP

Once the capital of Bengal in the 12th century, during the reign of Sen Rulers, today Nabadweep is better known as the birth place of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Located at the confluence of the Bhagirathi and Jalangi rivers, 120 km north of Kolkata, nine islands or dweeps that rose from the Jalangi River gave Nabadweep its name. There are nearly 185 temples in Nabadweep alone. Although each one is worth a visit, the most famous is the Sonargouranga, the temple with the golden statue of Sri Chaitanya. The mall town is over crowded during the Rash festival held in the months of Kartik (November).
